Movie Review: Thanks for Sharing
2 out of 5 Stars
Director: Stuart Blumberg
Starring: Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, Gwyneth Paltrow
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Recommended To: Those looking for a great cast in an extremely underwhelming film.
Synopsis: Adam (Mark Ruffalo), Mike (Tim Robbins) and Neil (Josh Gad) are all at various stages in their fight to overcome sex addiction. Mike has salvaged his marriage, Adam is five-years sober and preparing to start dating again and Neil is simply in denial.
Review: Thanks for Sharing features a mostly-talented cast completely devoid of chemistry. There are lines being spoken, but there isn't any sort of connection. The actors simply go through the motions and eventually the story runs its course when the script runs out of words. Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow are a charming and attractive pairing, but I never cared if they stayed together. They weren't invested, why should I be?
Director/writer Stuart Blumberg may have won over many critics with 2010's The Kids Are All Right, but he's yet to reel me in.
